Telstra will be offering an unlimited plan to its business customers that include all standard voice calls, video calls, MMS and SMS to any Australian mobile or fixed number plus unlimited MessageBank diversion and retrieval for $180 a month.According to Telstra, the Mobile PLUS plan is available for a 12 or 24 month minimum term. Customers with their own handset will only pay $150 per month on a 24 month plan. Users with smartphones also have the choice of a BlackBerry or Microsoft email solution or 2.5GB of data for web-based email and internet browsing.
Telstra Business Executive Director, Yasmin Dugan said, “This is the first time Telstra has offered an unlimited mobile plan to our business customers. In addition, customers who switch to Telstra from another provider and take up the unlimited plan for 24 months will receive a bonus credit of $540. For busy small business people, mobiles phones are often a lifeline that keeps them connected and their business running. This unlimited plan is ideal for those who make long calls or are heavy users of SMS or MessageBank. Combined with the Telstra Next G network, business customers now have more flexibility to choose a mobile solution that meets their usage, coverage and speed requirements,” added Dugan.
While this is a first for Telstra, Optus has a similar plan called Timeless Business that was launched last year. The Timeless Business plan includes 2GB Mobile Internet Browsing, unlimited standard local and national calls, text and voicemail to Australian GSM mobiles for $129.
